look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
L: Super hazy with a gorgeous creamy head, this is how a hop-bomb apa is supposed to look.
A: Big pine resin, citrus, and peach hops notes with some fruity esters that lay in the back. Malt is very sublte in the nose, a touch bready.
T/M: Very big bitterness up front, much more akin to an IPA. Moves into the same hop flavors as the aroma, perhaps a tad more piney and zesty. The malt provides very little balance which is totally fine because this beer is all about the complex hop character. Mouthfeel is super dry but not watery, perfect for the style.
Overall, what an awesome APA (tastes like a West-Coast IPA), Hill Farmstead is totally living up to the hype. HOPS!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into HF stemware
A-Frothy white head with some mild retention. Thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of glass. light golden hazy beer.
S-Aroma hits as soon as the growler was opened. Aroma is strong and is a precursor of things to come. Lots of sweet smelling hops. Tropical fruits. Peach, oranges, mango. some grapefruit and faint pine
T-not as sweet as the nose at least at first but may change as it warms. Peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime, some bitterness. flavors really pop as there is something about the beer that makes the flavors very bright and upfront. some maltiness to keep the hops in check. Bit of a bitter finish with some lingering pine and bitterness
M-medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. leaves you with a mouthful of flavor
O-strong showing here easy to see why this breweries beers are in such high demand
Serving type: growler
